Can a tow company hold a trucker's personal belongings?
A trucker friend had a tire blow and went down an embankment in Arkansas. He is only a driver for the company who owns the truck. Tractor and trailer are totaled. The truck was only towed 4 days ago. Now, tow company is telling him he cannot get his personal belongings out of the tractor because the owner of company/truck has not paid the tow company. Is this legal?
There is a couple of grand of personal belongings in the tractor and the owner of the truck is not being cooperative about paying bill.
